Orthodontic treatment of a Class II malocclusion case with single maxillary central incisor was presented in the case report. The treatment plan consisted of removing one maxillary central incisor instead of premolars. Bilateral maxillary lateral incisors were mesialized for space closure and substitution for maxillary central incisors. The morphology of maxillary lateral incisors was modified to mimic the maxillary central incisors. After treatment, both occlusion and esthetics was improved, and the patient was satisfied with the results.
